Repost Network now distributes to Korean music stores. Selecting Melon Plus in the application allows users to distribute to the Korean music market.
Essential Information on the Korean Music Market
The Korean digital music market is dominated by eight major music stores, listed below, which occupy over 90% of the market. As a whole, Koreans prefer streaming services over download services, given that the market share of streaming services is nearly 70%.
Apple Music and YouTube Red are the only international music stores available in Korea, and they occupy less than 10% of the market share. There are no other international music stores available in Korea – such as Spotify, Deezer, Amazon, or Tidal.
Thus, entering the Korean digital market begins with entering the Korean music stores. With Repost Network’s Melon Plus, users will be able to share their music with Korean audiences and spread their sound across the globe.
